Have you ever read the warning on a toothpaste label? I was actually pretty surprised to read:
"if more than used for brushing is swallowed get medical help or contact poison control center right away"
It is hard to believe that something used on a daily basis could be so risky. I recently read an article stating that sixty or seventy years ago, sodium fluoride, active ingredient used in toothpaste, was used to poison rats before it became a household regiment for cleaning teeth.
Does all this mean that sodium fluoride is fine as long as it's not swallowed or ingested? I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to appreciate that something taken orally is going to be absorbed, both sublingually and buccally. Of course, this doesn't account for the amount that is inadvertently swallowed.
We just touched on the active ingredient on toothpaste, the inactive ingredients are also under debate.
So, do you really want your family using traditional toothpaste? No way! now there are some safe alternatives. One that is making headlines is called OraMD.
OraMd is an all-natural oral hygiene product that is comprised of pure botanical oils that consist of; almond, spearmint and peppermint. A key benefit of spearmint and peppermint are that they are natural antiseptics. They naturally banish bad bacteria in the mouth and create a healthy environment. A much better approach to oral hygiene than toothpaste.
Other benefits of OraMD is that it's a three-in-one product; toothpaste, mouthwash and breath freshener.
A small bottle is made to last. It also very convenient to carry in my handbag to use after meals. It leaves my mouth fresh and clean.
OraMD is vegan and non-gmo
I am a firm believer in proper oral hygiene and I feel this is a very good product and a much safer alternative to traditional toothpaste. For more information visit trustedhealthproducts.com
